The Christmas tree is back on the deck and I want to thank Darcie for sending the snow my way!
I don’t particularly care for assembling blocks into a top but I like reaching the finished top stage. Tonight I worked on a binding while we watched a movie and then went ahead and assembled these blocks.
Now, it’s on to quilting. I’m setting a goal of quilting 10 tops by January 31st. With the organizing I did yesterday pairing tops with backings, I should be able to make good progress this week.
I love the twisted blocks! >>Thanks for the snow picture 🙂
I’m with you on assembling blocks. I just assembled a queen sized quilt and it was exhausting! I don’t much like getting the backing ready either but I have extra wide fabric for this one so it’s only trimming and squaring off, but such a huge piece of fabric is so unwieldy. Thank goodness for my frame even if it’s only a shortarm one.
Mary->I’ve been reading your blog for several months now, and I have to say You Are Amazing!! The amount of work you finish is astounding. >>One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to comment more on the blogs I read. It’s hard to jump in and talk to someone you don’t know…but you are a source of constant inspiration to me.>>Thanks for keeping me jazzed up!>Kim M from PA>knitandspin at gmail dot com
lol My pleasure, Mary! Just as long as you don’t make me shovel it!!! Guess it burns lots of calories…so I shouldn’t complain.>>I know I’d have a tough time choosing…but which did you prefer? The straight blocks or the wonky blocks? Both quilts are adorable!
Mary, I just love that uilt, 10 tops, way to go girl, keep us posted!!
Assembling blocks is not my favorite either – although I dislike putting borders on even more! I pretty much like everything else though. The quilt looks great!
Love the quilt. That’s a lot of quilting . . 10 by the end of the month, but if anyone can do it, you can!
